I've just bought Iron Maiden's new 2-cd compilation-album "From fear to eternity" (1990-2010).
I have'nt bought an Iron Maiden-album since "Seventh son of a seventh son" in 1988, but I really like it so far. I've listened to the first 8 tracks, and all the songs are epic. "Blood Brothers" and "El Dorado" are the best ones so far.
I can only recommend it, if you, like me, have'nt bought any IM-albums the last 23 years.
Got Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Greatest Hits...not a big TP fan, but this is a decent, more mellow listen.
Also got "Forevermore" by Whitesnake, and I think its excellent! I know RJHog was dissapointed in Coverdales performance, but I dig this disc. I think the vocals are still decent, but the guitar work is really top-notch. To me, I dont think you could find more 6-string talent in just one band...Doug Aldrich and Reb Beach both are among the top players in the world!
And finally, dont know what made me do it, but I "took a chance" on "The Chemical Wedding" by Bruce Dickinson. Had never heard one minute of it, never heard anyone talk about it. Just took a chance. And I'm glad I did. It really rocks! Talk about some "down-tuned" guitars! Very heavy disc, and an enjoyable listen!
Obviously I'm with you about Whitesnake.
And I'm glad you checked out The Chemical Wedding because Bruce Dickinson really had some great stuff on that disc.
